Western media shuts its eyes to persecution of Christians by IS

By Greg Sheridan
Greg Sheridan points out that Christians are the most persecuted minority group in the world.

He draws on examples from the Middle East and Africa and the lack of reporting about this in the Western media.

“There is one minority group that is more persecuted than any other in the world, persecuted more frequently, more widely and with more intensity.

There is indeed in one substantial region an explicit campaign of genocide being carried out against this group.

Yet you will hardly ever hear about it in the Western media.

The minority group in question is Christians. A terrible process of ethnic and religious cleansing of Christians from the Middle East is strongly in train. Although especially acute in Syria and Iraq, this reflects, and is a kind of grim culmination of, dynamics at work for decades, indeed for centuries.

But the active persecution of Christians extends far beyond the Middle East.”
